In collaboration with
A Founders’ guide to getting the most out of your Board and Advisory Board
Hey Silicon Valletta,
You asked, and we delivered!
One of the main requests from our recent survey was for SV to provide more structured opportunities to learn from each other. So we are organising the first peer learning session on Monday, March 16.
The topic is “A Founders’ guide to getting the most out of your Board and Advisory Board”. A crucial challenge facing all Founders is the when / how / who of managing your Board:
When do you need an Advisory Board? When a more formal Board?
How do you get the right Advisors / NEDs? Where do you look?
What are the common mistakes we can learn from each other?
What are some best practices we can put into action immediately?
Where can I go for more help / formal training?
We are thrilled to be joined by experts from KPMG, bringing their considerable experience into the room, as well as our shared learning. We’ll be discussing these topics and more in a confidential, facilitated discussion.
What’s in it for you?
Peer-to-peer approach – no keynotes or professors, just stories from the trenches
Listen to successful (and not so successful) approaches and key items to watch out for
Take home some golden nuggets you can apply at the next opportunity
Most of all, appreciate that you are not alone! Others may have gone through what you are about to experience – or better yet – you may be assisting fellow members to avoid pitfalls that cost you time, money and most critically emotional stress.
How best to prepare?
The most important ingredient is a willingness to share. We’ll be polling those that sign up for thoughts and experiences ahead of time. Attend so that you may be exposed to new outlooks and perspectives. We cannot promise you a secret formula, but we can guarantee a genuine experience.
